To me this is a nice example of Italian overhauling and relettering the 1944 Canadian WS-19 MK-III in the nineteen-fifties.  I own another example, dated 1960,  having an extra alu frontplate with Italian lettering. The picture can be found at the Canadian model WS-19 MKIII. Inside it looks pure original Canadian with a few new Geloso electrolytic capacitors.

I suggest a link to that model.
